Game of Thrones Season 2, Episode 8: "The Prince of Winterfell" was quite clearly the prelude to war. Next week, we finally get to see the epic side of fantasy when the battle for King's Landing comes to a head.

In this preview for Season 2, Episode 9: "Blackwater" (airing May 27), the focus is on fighting, fighting, and more fighting. Speeches. Archers. Swords. Fire. This is going to be awesome.

Check out the preview below.
